Less than a year on from his exit from Arsenal, Serge Gnabry is on the move again as the former Gunner has activated a clause allowing him to leave Werder Bremen.

Confirming the news, Sky Sports said he left Arsenal to join Werder Bremen last August with his transfer concluded with Gnabry, 21, holding a get out clause at the end of his debut season.

Having scored 11 goals in his 27 appearances for Werder Bremen in 2016-17, a season that saw him score a hat trick for Germany on his senior debut against San Marino, the midfielder has decided to leave the Weser-Stadion.

Managing director Frank Baumann told Werder Bremen Official Website, via Sky Sports: ‘After a very good first year for him at Werder, Serge has informed us that he would like to take the next step in his career. He will therefore activate a clause in his contract and leave the club at the end of the month.’

Werder boss Alexander Houri added: ‘It’s obviously a pity as Serge was a go-to guy for us, someone who has undergone a remarkable development and has helped the team enormously with his performances. We wish him all the best for the future.’

Hoffenheim have been mentioned as the destination of Gnabry, who never quite made the mark at Arsenal expected of him and undertook a loan spell with West Brom. Having left the Gunners last summer, after it became apparent he wouldn’t extend his contract, which would have expired this summer, he is on the move again
